Well of course you felt woozy, what kind of recovery is it when you jog just one foot? And since you're in Norway, shouldn't that have been 30 cm? Or did you mean you were jogging on one foot, but isn't that hopping?

Or, wait, did you actually mean...

1 arc-minute is about 1 nautical mile, J-J, assuming a north-south path. An east-west recovery would be shorter, obviously.

Also, I hate to be the one to mention it, but this log is noticeably deficient in photos of a certain little guy.

There's an interesting challenge: how far from the pole can you run an E-W arc-minute in one minute? I think it would be impressive to do it at Hammerfest. Nanisivik is only slightly easier. Ny-Ă…lesund might do the trick, if you could stand being outdoors for that long without heavy clothing on.

For a little guy who seems to be awake a lot, Haakon sure has been slacking off on his AP logging.

I know, right?

Ny-Alesund has not missed out (relatively speaking) on the recent unusual warmth.

The graph on this page shows the "warmth" there pretty clearly. Above average every month the past year, most months pretty significantly!

The significance of this is that I don't think one would need *that* much clothing to run an E-W arc-minute there. Probably a headlamp, though.

Ok, so I think an E-W arc-minute in Ny-Ă…lesund is about 350m (someone check my math, please). While it is certainly possible to run that in one minute it wouldn't be much of a recovery.

Having to carry a rifle in case of polar bears might slow the running down a bit. Or maybe the threat of polar bears would speed it up...

I think it would be reasonable to do it in June, so as not not require a headlamp. At any hour.
